  • The Light of Unity: Personal, Local, and Global Peace by Hooshmand Kalayeh

    By Hooshmand Kalayeh

    “The human relatives have harbored such a lot of heart-wrenching tragedies towards their brothers and sisters in the course of the a while. numerous lives of blameless humans of each race, faith, nationality and creed were misplaced in the course of those tragedies. the facility of our variety has been sapped via misunderstandings, prejudices, and suspicions. The adolescent period of humanity has been very painful and dear. For hundreds of thousands of years, we have now been killing one another and justifying our egocentric behavior within the identify of God, race, faith, nationality... even within the identify of freedom. Our ego has blocked our gentle. now we have been conditioned to reside in darkness. This darkness has ended in an unending cycle of private, neighborhood, and worldwide disunity.

    Now greater than ever, we, the folk of the realm, desire a unifying imaginative and prescient to bind us jointly to finish this period of disunity. I envision a United international locations proclamation stating September eleventh to be global harmony Day, to kindle the sunshine of harmony within the middle of all humanity. it is going to recognize the prior with forgiveness and have a good time a brand new starting with common attractiveness, organization, and appreciation towards an period of oneness in variety. the basis upon which we construct international cohesion needs to be in line with the primary of oneness-that we're all young ones of 1 God, expressions of 1 spirit, contributors of 1 race and voters of 1 kingdom, and the roots of our oneness are celebrated within the attractiveness and gear of our range.

    Let’s no longer look ahead to one other tragedy that brings us jointly briefly. Let’s move a legislations and make September eleventh a solidarity Day. we'd like an afternoon to remind one another approximately our universal humanity, common democratic rules, wishes, and demanding difficulties.

    We want a day with no violence, department, clash, or partisanship. we'd like an afternoon of common forgiveness and transcendence. we'd like an afternoon the place we will be able to establish the serious difficulties dealing with the USA, and create a plan to cooperatively clear up those severe difficulties. we'd like an afternoon of organization, appreciation, and social gathering. Then the single day of team spirit may perhaps develop into days of harmony and days of team spirit may perhaps develop into 3 days of harmony. With this straightforward act of awakening, we are able to steadily swap the realm in the direction of extra civility, humility, amiability, and team spirit.

    The notion of a team spirit Day is straightforward but profound. the most challenge of a solidarity Day is to concentration the state recognition on solidarity, peace, and prosperity inside of. No state could be a ethical strength for common peace and prosperity whether it is divided inside. a global solidarity Day on September eleventh every year equally will help to concentration the world’s awareness at the want for overseas realizing and cooperation towards a extra peaceable the next day to come. without doubt the trouble will commence in the United States yet finally it might probably develop to contain different nations world wide. this can be suggestion whose time has come.”

  • Erfolge im Leben und Beruf (German Edition) by Bert Hellinger

    By Bert Hellinger

    Das Familien-Stellen hat sich zuerst vor allem mit den persönlichen Beziehung befasst. Es hat die grundlegenden Ordnungen der Liebe ans Licht gebracht, nach denen unsere Beziehungen gelingen oder scheitern. Als ich anfing, den Gesetzen von Erfolg und Misserfolg in Arbeit und Beruf nachzuspüren und zunehmend in Unternehmen und Organisationen, kam ans Licht, dass diese den gleichen Ordnungen folgen. In diesem Buch gehe ich diesen Zusammenhängen nach. Es führt in die innere Haltung ein, die unsere Beziehungen und unser Leben zusammen mit unserer Arbeit und unserem Beruf auf gute Weise gelingen lassen. Obwohl auf den Erfolg ausgerichtet, ist dieses Buch zugleich ein Weisheitsbuch, angewandte Lebensweisheit.
    Bert Hellinger

    Dieses Buch geht auf einer ganz anderen Ebene dem "Erfolgs"-Phantom nach. Sie finden darin weder kaufmännische Gestaltungsvorschläge oder unternehmerische Leitfäden noch neurolinguistische Verhaltenstipps. Es geht einige Ebenen tiefer. Die GRUNDLAGEN des Erfolgs liegen immer in uns selbst, unabhängig vom Startlevel, der Ausbildung oder gar Intelligenz. Wem durch seine Familiengeschichte ein Erfolg verboten ist, kann noch so gute Voraussetzungen haben: Er wird scheitern. Diese und ähnliche wirkende Verstrickungen an´s Licht zu bringen und aufzulösen, ist das Ziel dieses Buches.
